so that I can deploy my project to the server. My question is if someone
has access to the server and they log in and view the ssh keys, can they
somehow read or write to the git repository on github? The github
repository is currently set to private and I don't want anyone to read or
write to it.

If some process on the server is able to read the repository using only
that key, of course anyone else who has that key will be able to use it.

If the SSH key itself isn't encrypted so that you need to enter a password
whenever you use it, you can basically think of that file as being a
256-character long password in a text file.  (Conceptually, anyway.
Mechanically it works very differently.)
